What is most valuable?
I am in the process of suggesting a new BI tool to our management team and I am looking at the different BI tools available.
Certainly Necto is good when it comes to:
- Multiple database connections
It has nice social features which can give context based discussions, search for users and relevant content within the system.
Necto has a Twitter-like feeling since we can subscribe to users in Necto. Subscribing to one of our colleagues lets us follow all the changes made to his or her workboard.
What needs improvement?
I am disappointed at following points
- Lack of BigData talks
- Predictive analytics looks a bit immature
Nowadays everybody is moving towards BigData and in this scenario, if any tool falls short in this area then it is a red signal for all of us.
For how long have I used the solution?
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
Yes. In my opinion, Necto isn't scalable for a large amount of data. It cannot handle BigData.
How are customer service and technical support?
We have not used customer service so far. Technical Support
We have not used technical support so far.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
I am into the process of suggesting a new BI tool to our management team wherein I am looking at the different BI tools available on the market.
We have not used any BI tool so far and we may explore OBIEE next.
How was the initial setup?
What about the implementation team?
It was a trial version to check the feasibility.
What was our ROI?
Necto has not been implemented yet. We ran a POC to check the features and capabilities and hence there is no ROI so far.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
Necto has not been implemented so far. We ran a POC to check the features and capabilities and hence there is no cost involved.
What other advice do I have?
I would like to make one comment to the user community - if you are looking for powerful tool which can support large scale databases and BigData Analytics, Necto is NOT an option. Please refrain from using it.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
